Susan soon learns she's dealing with five distinct ten-year-olds with different personalities and needs. Donna is homesick while Janie is shy. Ann's passion is sketching. Micky, the experienced camper, vies with Lynn, a spoiled brat, for bunk leadership. How can she handle these youngsters' problems and form them into one compatible unit in eight weeks? How does she foster the character of these youngsters? How does her own character grow during the summer? Does she devote all her of her time to her girls or spend part of it establishing a lasting relationship with Jerry Martin, the waterfront director? In the midst of everything, how does she handle another counselor's vicious jealousy over her relationship with Jerry? A Summer at Camp Floridian covers daily activities, Visitors Day, the prom, the banquet, an overnight, the play and more. For the romantic touch, Susan has dates with Jerry. Danger strikes when a snake bites one camper; and, another later goes missing. For counselors, it's a how-to guide, in fictional form, on solving the most common problems of children at camp. Youngsters will learn what to expect regarding a camp's daily activities and special events. For parents and grandparents, memories of camp will be revived. It's ideal for parents and grandparents who want to give children a novel without profanity, sex, violence, or werewolves.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite A Summer at Camp Floridian by Nancy B. Miller is the story of a first-year camp counselor who is having a hard time deciding what she should do. The moment the camp begins, she realizes that her work is cut for her by five feisty and strong-headed 10-year-olds. They each have their own needs and their personalities are clashing badly with each other. She has to do something to make sure that Janie, Donna, Lynn, Ann, and Micky have a camping experience that they will enjoy. Their summer is on the line and the pressure is on Susan now. While she is devoting time to these children, her own life is demanding her attention. What can she do to find that perfect work/life balance? Can she help these girls have a great summer together? A Summer at Camp Floridian by Nancy B. Miller is a very refreshing novel that is perfect for tweens and teenagers. The story is clean with no profanities, no explicit situations and or anything that can make someone uncomfortable. The story revolves around five children and their counselor, their hurdles and what they have to do to overcome those hurdles. This was a fun read, something that I would recommend for a lazy day. From the perspective of a tween or teenager, this is a wonderful story with plenty of action and adventure to keep them busy and interested. The emphasis on teamwork, patience, companionship, and friendship is great for children as well. No character is one-dimensional, every child has depth and potential for growth, which would be a great lesson for young readers.
